On Saturday, President Donald Trump's main counsel, Rudy Giuliani, proclaimed triumphantly that the president is "INNOCENT" of any offense following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia.

Giuliani was promptly mocked in numerous tweets for his misplaced victory lap.

Some people ridiculed Giuliani's congratulation of the other lawyers:
